Aleks watched her excitement as she went running towards the door of the house and she smiled towards Kane. “Thanks for distracting her. Those kids can really get her down sometimes. You’ve done a good job at making her forget.”
Aleks followed him into the house and could hear Millie running around upstairs trying to choose a room for herself. “This might take some time. She’s quite picky.”
Kane lifted her into his truck and smiled at her, “smoothies help princess.” She nodded and soon they were at Kane’s house. “This is daddy’s new house. He helped her out and then unlocked the door, “First Surprise is you get to pick your room
At daddy’s house and there’s a surprise for you in the back yard.” He said smiling as Millie ran towards the sliding door.
Aleks smiled at the way Millie seemed to cheer up when he put the smoothie in her hand and she thanked him for her coffee. It was needed after spending most of the day recovering from her food poisoning.
"Come on angel, let's go and see what this surprise is shall we?" Knowing full well what it was and how happy it would make Millie when she saw it.
Kane knelt down to Millie's level and hugged her, "Princess. Its okay... daddy has a couple surprises for you." He kissed her forehead and said, "first... smoothie." He handed Aleks her coffee and smiled, "its your favorite."
Millie took the smoothie smiling and Kane said, "The next part of the surprise means we have to go to daddy's house." Kane knew that Aleks would understand it was the swings.
Millie explained what had happened to Aleks when she picked her up and they walked back to the car in silence. She was sad that her daughter had to go through these things and she would be talking to the teacher about it later.
She offered Kane a smile and exchanged a look. "She's not had a great day today."
Kane was waiting in the drive way when she came back, an iced coffee in hand and Aleks' favorite and A smoothie for Millie waiting on them. "Theres my favorite girls." He said seeing Millie and Aleks. Millie ran to Kane... she had gotten picked on today because of him.. and her skin color.
Aleks breathed deeply as he closed his arms around her and the two said goodbye so they could go about their days. Aleks mostly slept because she was still feeling poorly but woke up about an hour before she needed to pick up Millie, feeling refreshed. She showered and changed and started to head out of the house to pick Millie up from school.
Kane nodded and hugged her tight to him, "Anytime Aleks... you and Millie are my priority now... and Millie comes first. I know that." He kissed her cheek too and said, 'I'll be by after school and maybe if I can get to home depot, they might get the play set set up for her in time."
4 hours later Kane was helping the guys from home depot put up the play set, it had a fort, two swings, and a slide as well as monkey bars on it.
"Wait...Kane." She reached out for him before he could walk away and took hold of his hand. "I'm not saying that there won't be a time when we are both in a better place. I'm not saying no forever...I'm just saying no for now. Millie needs to be our priority and I hope you understand that." She said softly and pressed her kiss against his cheek.
"And thank you, for looking out for me last night."
Kane nodded, "I know... its just hard being here and not being with you... I've stopped myself from calling you baby... and wrapping my arms around you in the kitchen like I used to..." He ran his hand through his hair and sighed, "I'm going to go to Home Depot and look for Millie's play set I guess... I'll be by later after school... I'm sorry Aleks."
When he asked her on a date she found her heartbeat racing like it always did when he asked. It was difficult for her to accept that he was back in her life and she wasn't sure she was ready to accept him back into her life in this way either.
"Kane...I care about you. I always have and I always will...but I'm just...I'm not ready to try this again. It's not fair on Millie if it doesn't work out. She needs to be our focus for now."
Kane sighed, "Aleks... do you want to go out to lunch today.. like a date?" kane had always been awkward as asking her out and this was no different. He wanted her back... he wanted to kiss her again without her pulling away, he craved that.
Kane's eyes met hers, "I love you darlin and if you'll have me... I'd like to try again."
Aleks nodded, "Alright I'll take you back to my place so you can get on with your day." She said and started to drive them back to her house. When they arrived she climbed out of the car and went to her front door, turning to him. "I guess...I'll catch you later?" She asked, not really sure when she would see him again.
Kane nodded, "My truck is at your place... I don't really have anything to do today until Millie gets out of school then and maybe go to the shelter tomorrow with her and let her help pick out my dog... but my truck should be here from Nashville with my things on Wednesday."
Aleks laughed and shook her head. "Take Millie with you. You are going to need some alone time at some point anyway and I think it will be good for her to get used to seeing you when we are not together too. It will help her understand that you are sticking around." She said with a smile and made her way back to the car. "Do you want me to drop you off somewhere?"
